Dead people are voting for Joe Biden.

All three voters are alive and two of them are most likely relatives of people born in the early 1900s who inherited their relatives' names.

All three voters are alive and two of them are most likely relatives of people born in the early 1900s who inherited their relatives' names.A Twitter user called Essential Fleccas claims that three people who are already dead voted for Joe Biden in Michigan. According to the videos published under the handle, June Aiken (120 years old), Donna Brydges (119 years old) and William Bradley (118 years old) voted for Biden via absentee ballots. Rudolph W. Giuliani, the president’s personal lawyer, also claimed that dead people voted in Michigan. This false information is used as evidence of voter fraud.

We found that two of the three people are alive and most likely are relatives of the people born in the early 1900s and inherited relatives' names. William Tarnley Bradley lives in Michigan, and he is 61 years old. His ZIP code is the same as the ZIP code of his passed relative, William Bradley, born in 1902. Donna Brydges lives in Ludington, Michigan, and is 75 years old. June Aiken lives in Jackson Michigan and is 55 years old. Most likely a clerical error has resulted in the younger relatives' legitimate votes being attributed to the records of the deceased voters, owing to the similarities in their names and addresses. The Michigan Department of State told us that June A Aiken’s birthdate in the Qualified Voter File was not accurate because it was a placeholder date – such dates are occasionally used if a registration exists but the exact birthday of the voter is not known by the local clerk. Based on her driver’s license it was determined that her date of birth was 1926 and this information is now in the Qualified Voter File. She is a regular voter and there is no evidence she has died.

Therefore, dead people are not voting in Michigan. Furthermore, we do not know who these three people voted for in the elections.
